When I decided to take IELTS, I started to look for materials to prepare for the test. Although I took the British Council preparation test, what contributed to achieving the desired result the first time is the time I spent working at home, using Road to IELTS. I improved my Listening result from 5.5 (before using Road to IELTS) to 8.
I would strongly recommend using Road to IELTS in order to improve your scores, especially in Reading and Listening.
